We found this to be a very interesting museum. Lots to read and absorb. Not your ordinary "tourist" type museum. If you are truly interested in learning more on the Amish/Mennonite culture, this is a must see.

Admission at the time we went was $5. There is an extra fee to see the movie about the Amish. It was worth seeing, but we can't remember the cost.
